To avoid detection of its 2013-2016 resumed illegal sales to Iran, ZTE formed the “contract data induction team” (“CDIT”).
It intended to use 8S to export U.S.-origin items from China to ZTE customers in Iran.
Beginning in July 2014, ZTE began shipping U.S.-origin equipment to Iran once again without the necessary licenses.
Summary of the Criminal ConductAccording to documents filed today, for a period of almost six years, ZTE obtained U.S.-origin items – including controlled dual-use goods on the Department of Commerce’s Commerce Control List (CCL) – incorporated some of those items into ZTE equipment and shipped the ZTE equipment and U.S.-origin items to customers in Iran.
ZTE did not include the U.S. items on the customs declaration forms, though it did include the U.S.-origin items on the packing lists included inside of the shipments.
